Snag Audrina Patridge’s Expensive Espadrilles For Less

 Denise Truscello/

If a Chanel shoe and a Christian Louboutin shoe had a baby in the form of an espadrille, it would be this.

I was super jealous when I saw The Hills star Audrina Patridge wearing the Christian Louboutin chain espadrille on the red carpet of her 25th birthday party in Las Vegas. It's a spring/summer style staple. I want it and need to have it; however, it's completely out of the budget. A summer shoe for $650? Are you nuts?

Low and behold this replica from Bebe – the Thea Chain Espadrille for only $129; and it's hot!

-Tall espadrille wedge with chain detail

-Chain accents on the ankle strap and toes

-Comes in black, white and tan

-Metallic stitching throughout the wedge with small buckle closure

-Cushioned insole; metallic sole.

I also found an even cheaper version of the fabulous shoe on for $64!


Chain Wedge Sandal, $64

-Sandal with chain link detail along the 5" wedge heel and along the straps

-Comes in black

I just love it and knowing that it has a life span of a few months, spending $129 doesn't seem too harsh. $64? Even better. Patridge's little black tiered dress along with minimal accessories make the shoe look that much better. Simple, chic and something I actually can't wait to order!
